Envoys anxious over Modi future

External publicity needs a push, they feel

GN Bureau | January 21, 2013



Indian diplomats abroad are keenly following Narendra Modi’s rise. During their interactions with Indian media persons over email or phone, they are asking if BJP is going to project him as PM candidate or not. Another question from them is about UPA’s failure to create a positive image of the country in the international arena.

Foreign investments coming into India have slowed down, especially after the gangrape incident and the negative publicity it has attracted in the foreign media. If subsequent reports from the various Indian missions are to be believed, the UPA II has to focus much more on the external publicity. A few diplomats have begun to say, in hush-hush tones of course, that UPA2 has failed in many areas of international relations. When they meet VVIP during visits to world capitals have also begun to air their anguish to dignitaries.
